• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

These are for nationwide use, and are available to all public safety users. :)

Do you know if they're P25 Digital only or can they be used in analog too?

I believe all freq's in the 700 band will be digital only due to the bandplans channel bandwidth allocation.

These three PAIRS of frequencies (there are three pairs, repeater and simplex - the LOWER frequency in 700 MHz is the talk-out/ talk-around) are available for nationwide itinerant public safety use and are ANALOG ELIGIBLE in 11K2F3E emission. That means they could be P25 or they could also be analog. Twelve channel pairs in all of the 700 MHz spectrum are the ONLY places analog is allowed. If you look at some licenses for this nationwide, you will see that some are licensed as 11K2F9W, or basically, any plurality of modulation types as long as they fit within the 11K2 emission mask - analog or digital. These channels are limited to no greater than 2 W and both XTS and XTL radios cut back their output power when these frequencies are programmed.

There are also 9 regional planning committee defined 2 W frequency pairs that are also analog eligible. These are primarily for on-scene use, like a fireground or tactical frequency, although some RPCs are allowing MO3 operation (mobile repeater - talk-in on 700, go out on another band and vice versa). These frequencies are site-specific and must be licensed in the area by the individual agency using them.

You'll probably be seeing more of these when the 700 MHz band is cleared. There is a stipulation on the licenses that requires non-interference: "Operation in the 764 - 806 MHz frequency band must be operated only in accordance with Rule 90.545 and must protect existing TV and DTV broadcast stations transmitting on TV channels 62, 63, 64, 65, 67, 68, or 69."
